My first market is now done and dusted and I survived, whoop. I worked like a crazy girl this past couple of months but it was all very much worthwhile, I pretty much didn't sleep last week, not a wink on Thursday so the actual market day is bit of a blur but I had a super time, sold lots, met lots of new people and had a blast. So the following will be a bit of a photo dump, displaying the wares I carefully created for the event. I have also created a Christmas market folder upon my website, if you wish to see then please click here and should anyone be interested in any of my goods, then give me a shout at firstname.lastname@example.org. I am so pleased I did this as now I can and have started the cogs rolling to set up an on line shop, hoorah.
So the following were displayed alongside a VAST assortment of my personalised prints and artwork, all framed. I took A LOT of frames with me that day.
Framed cuckoo clock:
Illustrated Swiss stylee cuckoo clock. A blog may follow on how I made this beauty, I am rather loving it.
DIY Colour-in play library kit:
Role play kit for your little librarian, ready to be fully decorated/ personalised and comes complete with actual librarian date stamp and ink pad PLUS proper librarian edge of your nose reading glasses. Amazing. I wanted to be a librarian when I was little, can you tell?
Illustrated London street sign:
Any street you fancy name it.
...Here's two I did earlier.
The days biggest seller. A very detailed print produced in collaboration with him indoors, my Mr King Kwak. It is a print of the locale, and the first in a series we have, a blog on which will follow soon.
This is a King Kwak special, turn your photos into illustrated artwork. That is me with the bunny ears, looking hot.
Dry wipe shopping list:
Another hit of the day, I sold out of these. Framed print complete with a dry wipe pen. Image available in blue, beige, grey and navy.
Tiara pocket mirrors:
Another good seller, I actually clapped when these arrived in the post.
Christmas colour-in temporary tattoos:
The week before the market I discovered a new world of printing papers, including temporary tattoo paper. This is the first I sampled and I imagine there will be a lot of fun coming up with the other papery discoveries. Oh and the tattoos can be coloured with make up and face paints.
Colour-in activity sheets:
Following on with the colour-in theme I made these sheets for the kiddos to do over the Christmas holidays. To the left a foldable personalised angel for on top of the tree and a mat for Santa's pie/ Rudolph's carrot. To the right a Christmas dinner set, four place settings to pop on top of your plates (before the food) and four napkin rings. I even packaged up and sold packs of Christmas sparkles to decorate such wares.
A bit of festive cheer, I am rather fond of the fairy light one.
A bit more festiveness. I imagined these as dual purpose, tags or decorations. I think the robins upon a Christmas tree would look rather lovely, may do it myself actually and post pics at a later date.
A few more tags:
A slightly classier gift tag, would also look nice with cream paper wrap/ DIY decorated wallpaper lining paper.
Pucker up. Double sided hanging illustrated mistletoe.
Large banner topper for your Christmas cake and holly toppers for your cupcakes.
And a whole host of illustrations were framed or sold at full size and postcard size ready for framing.
Shocking photos of the stall I realise, these were very quickly taken with my phone just as the market opened and people came in. Rubbish light but hope you get the idea.
And that's that. So what do you think? I hope you like it all and as I said before if you are interested in any of my goods please do drop me an email at email@example.com. Right I had better get cracking I now have a 5 years olds royal themed birthday party to organise.
